Hi All,

I went out for a walk earlier today and checked my watch after 5 minutes to find the centre of the watch had fogged up slightly, definitely inside the watch. 10 minutes later it had disappeared. Half hour later it came back, and then disappeared after about 5 minutes.

Back home now and it's completely gone and not returned for several hours. Help appreciated, cheers.

How old is it and has it been serviced?

Hi there. Breitling had it Feb 2017 for some warranty work just before the 2 year warranty ran out. So it's just over 3 years old...... Cheers

Sounds like a seal has failed, any chance you had the crown pulled in a damp environment or operated the buttons while wet? I think I am right that the crown can still be pulled on a B50.

Yes, you are correct. The crown on the B50 can be pulled, but I always check this. Am getting the seals checked as a precaution. Cheers

Well. I've just been told that the seals have failed on both pushers, and the crown. Is this normal in a 3 year old watch?? A bit disappointed to be honest..
